Fermenting Food on Your Kitchen Counter
October 9, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$25.00
Learn about the fine art of fermenting food in this hands-on session and take home your own starting ferment! Fermenting food is an ancient art. Essentially, fermentation is the transformation of a plant or other food item by various micro-organisms, like bacteria and yeast, and the enzymes that are produced by this process. For this Skill Build workshop, we’ll discuss how fermenting works, what can be fermented and the health benefits of consuming the live cultures created through fermentation. We’ll have several different kinds of ferments prepared for you to try and we’ll send you off with some recipes and resources so you can experiment at home. Finally, we’ll make our own ferment together that you can take home in your own mason jars! Foods you can ferment on your kitchen counter include kimchi, sauerkraut, sour pickles, root veggies, sourdough, fruit, meads, eggs, kombucha, vinegar, yogurt, kefir…and more! The sky’s the limit when it comes to learning about fermenting foods!
All proceeds to non-profit Cultivate Cochrane Society.
